Kilmarnock have suffered a blow with news that number one goalkeeper Cammy Bell is set to miss more than two months of action.

The 25-year old sustained a fractured wrist in Killie’s 2-1 loss to Motherwell on the weekend and will be out for up to 10 weeks which has greatly disappointed manager Kenny Shiels who already has the long-term absences of Paul Heffernan and Garry Hay to contend with.

"I'm disappointed for Cammy because he would have been looking at a call-up for Scotland, with Allan McGregor injured,” said Shiels.

"He hasn't had much luck on the international front. We've had three key players going in for operations in the last eight days; Paul Heffernan, Garry Hay and now Cammy.

"Sometimes you get periods like this, that's what squads are for."
